    The Ghost

    10 bikes, 2 cages and 13 caring people stood in honor of CPL Corzan in Kyle. One of our members was asked to read a scripture during the service and the Commander of the AMVETS for Central Texas volunteered to take his place on the flag line. Two PGR riders who are friends of the family will escort the family to SA. Had one new rider attend the mission. Nikki and Soup did a great job with the flags, thanks. The family wanted all to know how much they appreciated the flag line and the PGR.
